  • I highly recommend taking the dyeing+weaving combination class to get an idea of how much effort goes into each of those pieces of work we set our eyes on at the night market. These amazing women (and men helpers) work incredibly hard to produce these flawless beauties. Trying to create even a portion of a woven cloth was a humbling experience. This place has a peaceful and positive vibe that is hard to overlook. Everyone here seems calm and happy, not to mention extremely helpful. The best part is nobody tries to sell you anything. Of course, it's hard not to buy anything from here, given how utterly gorgeous everything is! I left this place with immense respect for the people who work here., And a bit of pride for the scarf I dyed (dark blue and green with white patterns) and the tiny piece of red silk with yellow pattern I wove.
